Lets say, I have taken a resolution. And there are 5 steps in the process of accomplishing the resolution. Is there a word for each of those steps? A word other than "baby-step", "target", "milestone"?
Milestone sounds bigger than resolution itself.
Baby-step doesn't have the same seriousness as resolution.
Target sounds more like and end-point. But, we are looking at something that's somwhere in the path to the target.
